In Auburn, children in K-5 go to neighborhood schools if they attend public schools. Then they go to Drake Middle School for 6th & 7th, the junior high for 8th & 9th and the high school for 10th - 12th. This may change if the referendum scheduled for September passes to increase property taxes for the purpose of building the proposed new high school. The basic principle of all students in grades 6 and above going to the same school will likely remain the same but the grades may be split differently among the schools if a new school is constructed. Auburn schools are highly rated and highly sought after.
There is also a good private school in town--Lee Scott Academy.
